Her­bal rem­edy for hair­fall

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - POSITIVE PARENTING -

WE are con­stantly bom­barded by im­ages of celebri­ties with daz­zling hair and mar­vel­lous skin. How­ever, for many of them, th­ese at­tributes are achieved with del­i­cate care and, in some cases, var­i­ous pro­gres­sive ther­apy.

Neeta’s Her­bal strives to achieve the same us­ing tra­di­tional herb- based prod­ucts to op­ti­mise the health of your hair and skin. In its 25- year his­tory, a vast ar­ray of hair and skin con­di­tions have been iden­ti­fied and suc­cess­fully reme­died us­ing nat­u­ral, non­syn­thetic prod­ucts.

This unique method of hair care com­bines mod­ern tech­nol­ogy with Ayurvedic medicine. In her quest to at­tain so­lu­tions for ever- present hair prob­lems, Neeta Her­bal founder, Neeta Gos­alia has an­a­lysed and tested ev­ery vi­able treat­ment tech­nique.

To solve hair dis­or­ders, it is im­por­tant to first un­der­stand the var­i­ous aspects of each. Among the com­monly known con­di­tions, alope­cia is the most no­to­ri­ous and presents in a plethora of forms.

In an­dro­genic alope­cia, hair fall is caused by minia­tur­i­sa­tion of hair fol­li­cles due to the over­pro­duc­tion of hor­mones pri­mar­ily testos­terone and its ac­tive me­tab­o­lite di­hy­drotestos­terone.

An­dro­genic alope­cia presents in dis­tinct pat­terns in males and fe­males – in males, hair re­cedes from the front of the scalp while in fe­males, hair fall is pri­mar­ily over the crown.

An­other com­mon form of alope­cia is alope­cia areata. This is con­sid­ered an au­toim­mune dis­ease in which mul­ti­ple struc­tures of the hair fol­li­cle are mis­tak­enly an­tag­o­nised by our own im­mune sys­tem dur­ing its growth phase, re­sult­ing in im­proper hair de­vel­op­ment.

Ap­prox­i­mately 20% of areata suf­fer­ers have a fam­ily his­tory while in oth­ers the dis­or­der may be trig­gered by a ma­jor life event. The ef­fects are phys­i­cally rep­re­sented as patches on non- spe­cific ar­eas of the scalp.

De­spite be­ing slightly less com­mon, an­other hair ail­ment wor­thy of men­tion is tel­o­gen ef­flu­vium.

The tel­o­gen phase is a nat­u­ral phase of the hair growth cy­cle when a small num­ber of hair shafts are shed from their fol­li­cle.

How­ever, dur­ing tel­o­gen ef­flu­vium, an in­creased pro­por­tion of hair fol­li­cles are forced into this phase, in­duc­ing ex­ces­sive shed­ding of hair.

How­ever, not all hair fall prob­lems can be at­trib­uted to ge­netic de­fects or com­pli­cated dis­eases.

Very fre­quently our hair is in a poor state due to un­healthy habits such as ex­ces­sive smok­ing and con­sump­tion of al­co­hol, an im­bal­anced diet, ir­reg­u­lar sleep­ing habits and such that con­trib­ute to the degra­da­tion of the hair fol­li­cle and its as­so­ci­ated struc­tures. For most hair prob­lems, mod­ern medicine sug­gests a cock­tail of drugs such as mi­nox­i­dil, fi­nas­teride and a va­ri­ety of cor­ti­cos­teroids.

How­ever, in most cases the side ef­fects are not men­tioned. This is why Neeta’s Her­bal prefers us­ing nat­u­rally oc­cur­ring, non- syn­thetic in­gre­di­ents to nur­ture and strengthen your hair.

It is pos­si­ble to re­verse the prob­lems men­tioned us­ing sim­ple her­bal coun­ter­mea­sures that are safe and free of de­bil­i­tat­ing side ef­fects.

Apart from hair care, Neeta’s Her­bal also ad­min­is­ters treat­ment for var­i­ous skin prob­lems. Hair ex­ten­sions, and cus­tomised wigs are also avail­able at its cen­tres.

Mix- and- match sock laun­dry

Put out a pile of clean socks and have the kids play “Snap” by pick­ing match­ing socks. For older kids, have them fold T- shirts and pile ev­ery­thing in the cup­board or drawer ac­cord­ing to colour.

Have an achieve­ment chart

Chil­dren love to see their own progress as much as we do and there’s noth­ing that sig­nals achieve­ment than a chart with gold and sil­ver stars. Kids get points for tidy­ing, set­ting the ta­ble, wash­ing their own cup and dust­ing. If you’re so in­clined, set a rule that for ev­ery 10 points gained, the child is al­lowed a treat.

Go toy- sized minded

Small fin­gers can’t han­dle grown- up things eas­ily, so make mat­ters sim­ple by buy­ing a lit­tle duster, a toy broom and so on. Then play pre­tend games where kids get to have su­per pow­ers and must deal with naughty vol­ca­noes that have erupted toys over the bed­room floor. Or keep it real and be but­lers and ho­tel work­ers.

Neeta’s her­bal uses tra­di­tional herb- based prod­ucts to op­ti­mise the health of your hair and skin.
